Telling Tales | Ages: 7 – 9

July 22 @ EST 9:00 am - July 26 @ EST 4:00 pm

Create your own characters and tell your own story ideas while learning at the hand of master teaching artists, a writer and a visual artist. You’ll learn the tools of the trade—how to illustrate an idea, choose a fitting style, and draw things you don’t know how to draw—and learn the basics of plot, character, and setting, all using juicy language. At the end of the week, you’ll take home your own comic or story book and illustrated mini stories. We’ll also spend time drawing in the museum. All art materials are included.

Teaching Artist(s): Emma Callahan and a visual arts Teaching Artist (TBD)
